Product Details

The glow that radiates from these extraordinary lanterns is enchanting. Each ceramic lantern is thrown by hand by artisans on the Greek island of Crete. It is made in 2 pieces: the bottom half holds a candle, and the top half functions as a dome. Both pieces are carefully detailed with round holes just under ½” in diameter that emit light. Fired for hours in a wood-burning kiln, the lantern emerges in a soft shade of tan. Exotic and beautiful in use, the lanterns also can be displayed as decorative accents.

  • Measures approximately 9" wide x 11½" tall
  • Holds a candle up to 4" wide x 7" tall (not included)
  • Lanterns are thrown by hand, so no two are alike




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Unique and wonderful!

I bought two of these lanterns for outdoor use on our deck. They are beautiful and unique-looking, and complement our Cretan pots planted with WFF plant collections. Also useful for keeping candles lit in windy weather, and preventing wax dripping on the deck furniture. I am pleased with this purchase, and would highly recommend these lanterns, particularly if you love the Cretan pottery line.
